    between our lack of ability to tackle, the referees, and our prevent offense, we can still snatch defeat from the hands of victory!!!

    it is and it isn't. i know jt went into instant lead protection. but we have what? a hair over 20 yrds passing? we are either going to get smith some more experience throwing or he is just keeping the spot warm for zwick. i haven't seen anything that would make me think the qb controversy is even close to being over.

    The problem with this offense is obvious -- it's a combination of a very weak offensive line and defensive offensive coaching.

    The problem with the line is probably not addressable through coaching. We simply don't have the talent this year. When was the last time you remember a walk-on starting on the Buckeye offensive line? That speaks volumes.

    The other aspect of the problem, defensive offensive coaching, is clearly the fault of the coaching staff. The quarterbacks have obviously been coached not to throw interceptions, rather than to throw pass completions. It is no wonder that tOSU yards per pass attempt numbers are among the worst in Division 1. Neither Smith nor Zwick will throw a ball unless they can reach out and touch the receiver at arms length. This offense makes the Woody Hayes era look like Air Coryell.

    I agree completely but its hard to judge a QB when the playcalling went into ultra conservative in the 2nd half

    As I type this, JT is letting Smith throw and he is looking sharp

    How many pass attempts did Smith get in the first half?

    Well that is a good point, but then again...PSU dominated TOP in the 1st half. Another consideration is the 3 or 4 scrambles and sacks he has taken...the passes have been called but not carried out. The lead and the wind are both factors in that

    It's too bad that ultra conservative Tressel doesn't trust all the talent he has.
